Artist Talk Philip Akkerman with Michiel van Nieuwkerk28 Jan 2023 20:00 / Artist Talk@Nest
During Nest’s 15th anniversary, you are welcome to join the conversation between Michiel van Nieuwkerk, who created the 100-part series “Dutch Masters of the 21st Century“, and Philip Akkerman.
Initially, Akkerman captures himself as you would expect a self-portrait to do, with a glance in the mirror to check that everything is correct. Gradually, the painting becomes more important than the mirror image. At first, the concept – the choice to make self-portraits for the rest of his life – is also more important than the execution. Gradually, he becomes more and more concerned with making a “beautiful painting. We first watch the 10-minute mini docu and the conversation follows.
